NPS® Smart PTC® Column

Tecnostrutture has cooperated with the creative team RNDR Studio & OAF Design in order to improve the PTC® column: we have applied smart devices to the PTC® column to fulfil the need for a more comfortable, safer, easier and sustainable living. The result is Smart PTC®, a column that becomes a real hub for the building automation.

With UNI EN 13225 CE marking, Smart PTC® is a hybrid element: designed as innovative structural and architectural element due to its extremely performant slim sections and to the wide range of finishing, it becomes now the centre of an automation system that includes lighting and interaction with the people who live into the building.

It is the first element of a home automation system designed to bear the load of a building while fulfilling the need of the people who live inside.

Application-Technique Recommendations

The Smart PTC® NPS® pillar represents the centre of a home automation system that can be adapted to the needs of the different environments in which it is installed, from public spaces - car parks, shopping centres, libraries - to private ones such as offices and homes.
